Quoting mαkαnαni:" I like Rory and Parker--for boys. I voted Rory--assuming these are names for a boy."
Hmm... interesting. I've never heard Parker as a name for a boy. *shrugs*
You learn something new everyday I suppose.
Rory is the nickname for the name I like. But I don't share the full names that I've chosen, just what others have.
Quoting The ℰffin' D!
Quoting mαkαnαni:" Parker is most definitely a boy's name. I like Rory as a nickname for Aurora."
Spot on. That's the name I love. Damn you. :x
Around here (where I live, not BG) I've heard a few Parker's, but they belonged to girls. The only version of Parker on a boy that I've seen was Parkour.
ETA- Not arguing the fact, just trying to show that I had no idea it was for a boy. lol
Quoting KeriM:" I've always thought about Parker as a boy's name. But then I was like "Well, Parker Posey is a girl..." ... [snip!] ... Posey is a girl..." I love the name Aurora. My friend's daughter's name is Aurora and they call her Rory for short. :) "
So I suppose it goes both ways. But it was originally meant for a boy.
I love the A name so much. I hate that it sounds like a mouthful, which is why I like Rory a bit better.
Quoting KeriM:" Rory is much less a mouthful for sure. Aurora is beautiful though. Everytime I see/hear it I think about Aurora Borealis. "
But really, we give our kids these extravagant names... but end up calling them by some nickname for most of their life anyways.
I really love Aurora. We have a few names picked out, but that tops the list for sure.
Quoting KeriM:" :) Only my oldest goes by a short form. He's Alexander, and goes by Alex at home. But only in OUR ... [snip!] ... else, he goes by Alexander. My other two are Chelsea and Marcus and Marcus is never shortened to Marc.. It's always Marcus. "
I see. It makes sense.
I was talking more along the lines of a name that only you call them, or a name that you give them when they're babies like "bub" or "chubs" and so on... so it goes for your oldest I suppose since only you call him Alex. I call my daughter by her full name but hate when others shorten it.
I've never gone by my full name, I'm just so used to being called "Krist" that when someone actually does say my proper name, I don't even notice. :oops:
